Best Buy has the lowest price on the Apple Watch Series 5 for Cyber Week

As big smartwatch brands like Samsung and Apple continue to release new and improved watches year after year, many of the last-gen models start to see some enormous price cuts during the holiday season. Now that Cyber Week is coming to an end, most of those top sales on older smartwatches have disappeared into thin air. Fortunately, Best Buy is still offering

discounts on the Apple Watch Series 5

for its latest Cyber Week sale. This is the lowest price we’ve found anywhere online today for this watch, but we’ve also found a discount on the latest iPad and MacBook Air as well if you’re looking for more Apple tech.

We gave the Apple Watch Series 5 an almost perfect review, and it’s not hard to see why once you have it on your wrist and connected to your phone. Its stylish design, always-on display, and fitness features make the best smartwatch to buy in 2019. If you’re already a proud owner of an iPhone or a pair of Apple Airpods, then the latest WatchOS device is the next logical step for you. As far as we can tell, Best Buy is one of the only online retailers still offering a sale on its stock with a discounted price of just $384 right now.

It should also be noted that the discount is only available on the standard GPS model. If you want a watch that will still be able to receive calls, texts, and alerts while you’re away from your phone, you’ll want to pick up the cellular version.

Apple Watch Series 5 vs. Series 4: Which one should you buy?

The Series 5 is the best Apple Watch you can buy right now, but it’s not the only model in the lineup. Even at a discount, the Series 5 is still $35 more than the Series 4 at Best Buy, and when you stack the two watches up side-by-side they aren’t all that different from each other. So if you’re trying to decide, here are a few key differences to keep in mind:

The Series 5 comes with an always-on display

The measurements and design between the two smartwatch models are almost exactly the same, with the one key difference in appearance being the always-on display.  The body of the latest generation watch is also made of 100% recycled aluminum, but that isn’t obvious in the overall aesthetic. If you don’t care about either of these add-ons, however, then you don’t need to pay the extra cost of the most premium Apple smartwatch.

The Series 5 has a few new hidden features

Unlike the Series 4, the latest model comes with a few extra tricks up its sleeve. With an internal compass, the new S5 processor, and a much larger storage capacity, the latest model still takes the crown in overall features. If you don’t need all of those additional bells and whistles, however, then the Series 4 and Series 3 watches should suit you just fine.

The Series 4 is still cheaper, but not by much

Despite the few differences the Apple Watch Series 5 provides, it’s still not that much different than the Series 4 when it comes to overall performance. So if you’re looking to save as much money as possible this Christmas, there’s no harm in going with last-gen Apple tech.

AirPods Pro are out of stock at major retailers. Here’s how to find them today
Apple AirPods Pro

It's been a few months since the newest AirPods hit the market, and we suspect even Apple is surprised at just how well-received its AirPods Pro have been. We were certainly surprised by just how good they are. But all of those rave reviews have come at a cost for consumers looking to get a set as a gift for themselves or a loved one this holiday season: AirPods Pro were already in very short supply and the combination of Black Friday/Cyber Monday diminished that supply even further.

Most online stores including Amazon
are showing zero in their inventory, with wait times ranging from one week to four weeks, which is a real problem for that all-important December 25 deadline. But that doesn't mean you can't buy the AirPods Pro, it just means you're going to have to get creative.
Keep googling
Even though the big players are sold out, some alternative sources might still have stock. Until a few days ago, Verizon Wireless -- not normally a retailer we'd think of for true wireless earbuds -- still had some, but now its site says it can't ship until after Christmas.

Extended Walmart Cyber Week Deals: Last Chance to Save on TVs, consoles, & more
Walmart Cyber Monday .

The 2019 Walmart Black Friday weekend blowout sale ended with a bang a week ago, but America's number one big-box retailer wasted no time in throwing its weight behind Cyber Monday with a bunch of new deals as Christmas looms closer. And after the Black Friday dust settles and the warring Black Friday hordes have dispersed without leaving behind too many unnecessary casualties, Cyber Monday and Cyber Week are the best opportunities of the remaining holiday shopping season to find last-minute bargains right from the comfort of your couch before Santa starts loading up his sleigh.

During the big sales we've seen in 2019 so far, Walmart ran many of its biggest rollbacks on pricey electronics like 4K smart TVs, wireless headphones, desktop computers, gaming laptops, and video game consoles (primarily the PS4 and Xbox One, but Walmart has also had many of the best Nintendo Switch bundles). And while Cyber Week has wrapped up, the holiday shopping season is still going strong for a couple more weeks and now may be your last chance to snatch up those must-have gifts at deep discounts before they're gone. The good news is that we've smoked out the best remaining Cyber Monday and Cyber Week deals right here:
